Hand dying yarn...wool...Koolaide
Long time no chat. I started my own business and havne't had time to knit much :-(
Well, the holidays are coming, so I bought a bunch of yarn from KnitPicks. I bought several skeins of that dye your own wool ($2.99), and I have visions of dying my own and doing some felting projects. But, in the grand tradition of leaping before I looked, I bought the yard having no idea what I'm doing. I know that people use Koolaide as an easy and fun dye, and I think I'll try that. But here are my questions:
1) Do I die the yarn first, or felt the finished product first?
and...evern more importantly,
2) Can I felt a Koolaide died garment??!!!!
I guess I should have looked into this before submitting my order, but I have faith something will work out.
What other type of dyes can be used (non-toxic and in the kitchen).
Glad to be knitting again!
